Celebrate the Return of @CWiZombie with Your Own Brain! ( @iZombieWriters ) from @kleffnotes

To celebrate the debut of iZombie season three tonight on The CW I am sharing a recipe I originally debuted during the finale of season two. With the brand new poster showcasing a blue brain, I created a new variation for tonight.

This recipe originally was posted on the iZombie Support Group site, but my recipes for this new season will all be appearing here on The Nerdy Girl Express.


Ingredients and Supplies:

8 packets unflavored gelatin (I used Knox Brand)

1 standard size box white chocolate pudding (I used Jello Brand)

1 cup cold water

2 cups boiling water

1 cup room temperature skim milk

4 drops red food coloring

1 Brain Mold

Step One: Bring two cups water to a boil on the stove

Step Two: While water is coming to a boil take eight packets of gelatin, empty them into a medium sized bowl

Step Three: Add one cup cold water to gelatin powder, stir until roughly the consistency of applesauce

Step Four: Add two cups of boiling water to gelatin mixture, stir until fully dissolved

Step Five: Let liquid gelatin cool for 30 minutes

Step Six: After 30 minutes has passed take 1 cup room temperature skim milk and pour into medium size bowl

Step Seven: Add one standard package of white chocolate pudding mix

Step Eight: Stir up mix and milk, but do not let it firm up, it is easier to add to the gelatin in a liquid state

Step Nine: Add four drops of red food coloring (for this season three version I used 4 drops of neon blue food coloring) to liquid gelatin and stir until it is entirely red

Step Ten: Pour liquid pudding into gelatin and stir until fully incorporated

Step Eleven: Pour mixture into brain mold

Step Twelve: Leave mold in refrigerator uncovered for 24 hours

Step Thirteen: Remove mold from fridge

Step Fourteen: Get a large bowl and fill roughly a third to halfway full with warm water

Step Fifteen: Sit mold in water for 15-20 seconds

Step Sixteen: Take a pointed knife and run the tip along the edges of the brain to loosen it from the mold

Step Seventeen: Get a plate, turn brain mold over and shake mildly vigorously until the brain pops out

Ta da!

I also have a companion video where I show you how to do everything while wearing a Liv costume, because who doesn’t love a zombie costume?
